When the student is ready, the teacher will come. Indeed. I was ready for a deepened spiritual practice. I am already a meditation teacher. Spirit was listening. I friend talked about Autobiography of a Yogi, which I read enraptured, especially the final chapters. I was deeply moved. I already had an ATMA kriya yoga practice from classes with Yogi Ashokananda but they didn’t exactly mirror the teaching of Paramanhansa Yogananda, that is what I wished to find.

My wish was granted. Swami lives just down the road from me. I am now including the five breaths in daily practice – in the morning mostly, I find that easier, before the day begins. I have missed a couple but most days I am attentive and I will endeavour to continue. Once we are allowed to commune with people I shall probably convert my practice to include visits to the Shambala Ashram in Penzance.
